Traditional Tibetan Medicine For The Western World
- A Holistic Approach to Better Health -

Traditional Tibetan medicine is founded from an eons-old traditional medical system that employs a complex approach to diagnosis, incorporating techniques such as pulse analysis and urinalysis and applies dietary and behavioural factors as well as medicines compounded from natural materials (e.g.mainly herbs and minerals) and physical therapies to treat illness.

Tibetan medicine is effective in all kinds of illness. It has proved particularly beneficial in the treatment of chronic diseases such as rheumatism, arthritis, ulcers, chronic digestive problems, asthma, hepatitis, eczema, liver problems, skin diseases, sinus problems, anxiety and problems connected with the nervous system.

The basic theory of Tibetan medicine is to maintain or restore the balance the three subtle energies of the body. The long-term causative factors of these three energies are the three poisons of attachment,hatred and closed-mindedness which as foundational afflictive emotions create a common basis with Buddhist philosophy.

Dr. Barry Clark was born in England and trained in the Himalayas for eighteen years in almost all the theoretical and practical aspects of the ancient Tibetan medical system, under the tuition of the great, renowned Master of Medicine, Dr. Yeshe Donden, who was the personal physician of His Holiness the Dalai Lama for eighteen years.

In his first seven years, he also studied with the famous Dr. Pema Dorje. Throughout all these years, his theoretical training consisted of teachings on 150 of the 156 chapters of the "Four Tantras" of Tibetan Medicine, as well as a three and a half year teaching on a 460 page work on Materia Medica. He also received several years of clinical training with Dr. Yeshe Donden before beginning his own independent medical practice, 16 years ago.

He now lives in Australia, and frequently teaches and gives workshops in Europe, North-America, Southeast Asia and Australasia.  Read more...
